ELKO – The Northeastern Nevada Museum is exhibiting the watercolor works of artist “Lady” Jill Mueller now through Feb. 4.
Mueller captures northeastern Nevada landscapes in her watercolor paintings. Her exhibit in the Barrick Gallery is titled “Lamoille and Beyond” and consists of 16 works.
“We chose this exhibit because she displays the vast expanse people live in for months in northeastern Nevada,” said Lauren Roovaart, museum exhibit curator. “She doesn’t place human figures in her work, so this allows the viewer to imagine and place themselves in that space of landscape.”
Mueller was born in 1944 in Hollywood, California, and resides in Reno where she has taught at the E.L. Cord Museum School for the past two years. Readers can learn more about Mueller on her website at ladyjill.com and by visiting her exhibit.
Mueller’s works will be paired with a Basque in the High Desert exhibit during the 2018 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering to illustrate the connections between the people who choose to live in the high desert and the landscapes they filled.
